Linking between files
When you link to, or mention another file from somewhere in Whimsical, that file will display a backlink to the file where it was linked from. This makes it easy to navigate between files, and see how they connect.

Where will I see backlinks?
- Backlinks work in Docs and all other modes: Boards, Wireframes, and Projects.
- You'll also see backlinks added to any comments which mention a file. 👌
- If you use GitHub, it is possible to show backlinks to pull requests, issues and comments by installing the GitHub app.
- In Docs, you can see backlinks in the header menu and also at the bottom of the file:
If someone does not have access to the file where the link or mention was added, they will not see the backlink.
